Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Vow to Embrace the Inclusion Rider Clause

  • Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

Jordan announced last week that he would add an inclusion rider on all projects produced under his Outlier Society Productions banner. The two are founders of Pearl Street Films, a production company responsible for films like Manchester By The Sea, as well as the upcoming The Batman, which Ben Affleck will definitely be in.

Pearl Street Films, the production company that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon founded, will now use inclusion riders on future projects.

One of the lawyers behind the inclusion rider concept, Kalpana Kotagal, and Stacy Smith of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, issued a statement to Variety following DiGiovanni's announcement. The term reached wide public consciousness earlier this month at the 90th Academy Awards, when best-actress victor Frances McDormand noted it in her acceptance speech.

An Inclusion Rider can be used by a star to enforce diverse cast and crews on their movies.

But nevertheless, they will be adopting Inclusion Riders for their films as Feig confessed it was the "right thing to do". That was around the time when J.J. Abrams and Ryan Murphy began actively trying to diversify their production teams. During a 2015 segment of the show "Project Greenlight", the Cambridge native rebuffed the suggestion of producer Effie Brown ("Dear White People") to hire a white woman and a Vietnamese-American man to co-direct a "Greenlight"-backed film featuring a minority character who is a prostitute".

And not all companies are jumping to embrace the practice of instituting inclusion riders. "And so the fact that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business... we're not going back".
